Even a fragmented understanding of these concepts will prove useful though, and eventually they will improve as these lessons are assimilated by repetition and example.More Jeremy Silman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Isn't it preferable to have him in a self-sufficient position rather than as a liability of the state?More Jeremy Silman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
